A rainy Monday

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded. "
-- Maya Angelou
Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
--John 15:13

That "Monday feeling" was amplified by a thousand yesterday, wasn't it?

There is a wonderful friendship that has risen from the events of 9/11, and that is the one between Brian Clark and Stanley Praimnath. It features in several documentaries about the day. Every time I see those two talking about the circumstances in which they met, I get goose bumps.
